    Crabbycakes's Note:

    This recipe comes from Food 911 on the Food Network. It is quite rich but the best one I have found. To cut back a little, I use skinless chicken pieces.

      So so so so good!! I have made this twice...once with chicken the second with rabbit.All I can say is...Thank you! Thank you for posting this.I love that this one has the addition of cognac/brandy.This is the best one I have tried yet and I love the fact that it is cooked via stovetop.No heating the whole kitchen as some of the other recipes require cooking in the oven.Mine cooks for an hour and a half to two hours for complete fall off the bone tenderness!Simply amazing!
